Spirited, a fresh adaptation of the Ebenezer Scrooge tale, will be produced by Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell. This week, we will observe the actors’ performances in an atypical Christmas musical comedy.
Spirited is the new Christmas musical comedy on AppleTV+, starring Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell, two of the best actors in the genre. The story is based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, which was published 179 years ago this year. This is not the first time that the narrative has been adapted, but it appears that this time we will see a novel and distinct adaptation.
Sean Anders, director of Daddy’s Home, will helm the film. Sean Anders and John Morris write screenplays. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul will compose original tunes. Regarding choreography, Chloe Arnold (from The Late Late Show with James Corden) will perform the large dance routines.
The classic 1843 novel A Christmas Carol follows Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future who demonstrate how his actions have negatively affected the world. Therefore, the approaching Christmas comedy will be unique, as this time, the audience will not witness the tale of a modern Scrooge but will instead be brought face-to-face with the ghost of Christmas present.
